Opinions wanted for draft £650 stylish and upgradable pc

The goal behind this draft is to have a pc that works and works well as it is. While looking really good and having room for future upgrades. The past two weeks I have been researching thoroughly for this build and I'm starting to feel confident with what I've drafted. Just thought I'd run it through with you lot. I know fine well that for £650 when it comes to pure performance I could do better, but I wanted it to look good too, therefore I tried to draft a build that was upgradable.

That's awesome! I do agree the G3258 is often overlooked and is quite a powerhouse in its own right :D
